Located on New York City’s West Side, St. John’s Terminal is something entirely new: the workplace we would all want to work in.
In 2018, Oxford acquired the St. John’s Terminal development site highlighting the historically significant freight terminus of the High Line. We saw opportunities in its epic scale, and envisioned its industrial past and immense historic infrastructure reimagined as a next generation, high-performance biophilic workplace. We believed its legacy as an anchor of New York City would stand as a foundation for its future.
The best workplaces enhance performance, instigating innovation and supporting the whole person. St. John’s Terminal original structure enabled this, and our team’s commitment to future-forward design evolved it to a new place, uniquely positioned to disrupt – and weather disruption to – the traditional office experience. So it’s no surprise that the site attracted one of the world’s most innovative companies, Google, to sign their largest lease in history – the largest lease ever, in Manhattan – and ultimately, to exercise its option purchase the building in Q4 of 2021.
